Can foreign students in New York colleges take up part-time paid work?

I'm planning to study in New York and take up a part-time job at the same time. Is it legal and is it easy to find a job that pays at least $7/hour? thanks for all your informative answers. but does that mean within the first year i won't be able to apply for any jobs at all? i really need a job because i only have enough savings for school fees & accommodation. what if i opt for a working visa and study part time instead? is that a more viable option?

You would need a visa that allowed you to work. Student visas may allow you to work for your university, but probably not anywhere else.

Only if your working at the University--see your student counselor for help, it's tad more complicated than that, but it can be done.
